Types of Cedar Roofs Roofs We Install

Cedar Shake Roofing

Very piece of cedar shake roofing is individually hand-cut, rather than mass-produced on an assembly line. This leads to more variation and non-uniform pieces, and while this often adds to the aesthetic of your home to provide a more rustic look, experienced installation is a must. If done improperly, the different-sized pieces can expose your roof to any number of gaps and leaks. Crown Exteriors will ensure that your roof is water-tight the first time, so you can relax and enjoy your new roof.

Pros and Cons of Cedar Roofing

When making your selection about the type of cedar roofing to fit your needs, there will be pros and cons. We have broken down the list for you:

Pros of Cedar Roofing

  • Curb Appeal: The natural wood look of cedar roofs makes it a unique and beautiful roofing choice.
  • Longevity: While 25 years is the expected life of cedar, you can get anywhere even more years of life out of your roof with proper maintenance and routine treatments.
  • Weather-resistant: When competing against severe weather conditions, cedar roofs stand up well to heavy rains, strong winds, and others. When facing storm damage, they require fewer repairs than other roofing types.

Cons of Cedar Roofing

  • Maintenance: In order to prevent moss and mildew formations, cedar roofs require a little more maintenance compared to other roofing types in order to keep them in tip-top condition.
  • Expensive: Cedar is considered a high-end option for roofing due to its natural variety. As a result, it is more expensive than other roofing materials.
  • Drying Issues: Since cedar roofing materials are made from cedar trees, they are more prone to drying out than other roofing materials. That means your home is more susceptible to fire damage, cracking, and pest issues.

Cedar Roof FAQs


What is it made from?

Cedar roofing materials are made from – unsurprisingly, cedar! Cedar is a very durable tree that once put to work makes a great roofing material.

Does it cost more than regular asphalt shingles?

Because cedar shake is an all-natural material, unlike asphalt shingles, they require extra care and precision to install. As a result, it can be more costly to choose cedar, but the difference in quality is unmistakable.

How many years will a cedar roof last?

With proper maintenance, your cedar roof will last up to 25 years, but it could easily last for longer the more regular your maintenance is.

What is the most durable cedar material?

Western red cedar is the most resistant to rot and decay. It has one of the longest lifespans of all North American softwood cedar trees. It’s also the most abundant type.

    I highly recommend Crown Exteriors. These guys are the "good guys", they are down to earth, friendly, easy to get ahold of and really go out of their way to help people. My entire experience from start to finish was fantastic … More and it made a huge difference to my home. They kindly walked me though getting my roof replaced along with my siding and gutters, coordinating everything including navigating, and working with my insurance company. When they came to do the work, they were prompt and efficient. I will be contacting them again and also already referred them to friends and neighbors. Thank you for your excellent work.

    After experiencing hail damage to our roof last year, Crown Exteriors was recommended to us by our neighbor. I'm so happy I listened to her! Their service and knowledge can't be beat.

    Crown Exteriors is a fantastic company to hire for any exterior work you need done, prompt and precise, completely professional, excellent craftsmanship and work...they even went up against our insurance company to make sure all the expenses … More for our wind/hail damaged roof was covered and completely replaced and repaired! Would recommend to anyone looking for an honest company that stands behind their work and does exactly what they say they are going to do! Which can be very rare these days :-)...

    We used Crown Exteriors to fix hail damage to our home’s roof, siding, and gutters. John and his team were very helpful in navigating the insurance claim process. After the claim was approved, they were there for every question during … More the selection process, and the installation was top quality. We’re very happy with the end result, and I would recommend to anyone.
